    Being able to access your loan account easily and get fair, friendly help from your lender makes the whole experience much better, from application to settlement and far beyond.

        JoshuaOctober 7, 2018Staff

        Hi Alan,

For this reason, you might not get approved as a self-employed application. You might want to check our list of lenders who accommodate self-employed applicants here.

        I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

        Have a wonderful day!

        Cheers,

        Hi Sandra,

        Thanks for your inquiry

        Joint accounts work well for people who spend money in a similar way. Both people should agree how and when they will deposit and withdraw money, to meet the same goals. It can also make joint payments like mortgage, rent and other bills easier to manage.

        Hope this information helps

        Cheers,
        Arnold

      Is there a process to transfer a nab home loan over to UBank or is it treated as a refinance like it would be from any other bank? Thanks

      • finder Customer Care
        LouNovember 7, 2016Staff

        Hi Luke,

        Thanks for your question.

        Home loan refinancing is when you’re moving from one home loan to another, and this can be with the same or a new lender. So yes, if you are moving from NAB to UBank, you may have to undergo the normal home refinancing process.

        Cheers,

      I am buying a home to live in under my name only. I previously purchased properties with my ex husband and this will be my first home on my own. Our current home will be sold. Am I considered a first home buyer?

        Hi Annie,

        Thank you for contacting finder.com.au we are a financial comparison website and general information service we are not mortgage specialists so can only offer general advice.

        Generally, you will be considered or eligible for the FHOG if you are an Australian citizen or permanent resident, buying or building your first home in Australia, and will reside in the property (main place of residence) within 12 months of the settlement and live in it continuously for at least 6 months. I suggest that you check with your state’s office of revenue website and find out if you’re eligible.

        You can also find more information about First Home Owner Grant (FHOG) scheme on this page.

        Cheers,
        May
